Stoke City Boss Mark Hughes Angry With Martin Atkinson Liverpool Decision, Says He Should Not Ref This Weekend

Atkinson booked Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet for tripping Stoke striker Mame Diouf with the goal unguarded in Wednesday’s fixture.
Stoke were 1-0 down at the time but lost 3-0 and Hughes argued “everybody” knew it should have been a red card.
“I don’t see why he

should be refereeing this weekend,” he added.

“My feelings reflect everybody else’s view: the referees who reviewed it since and everybody in the stadium, apart from one.
“Those are the decisions that frustrate me as a manager – and other managers.
“Why it wasn’t made I don’t know. It was a pretty straightforward decision in my view and it wasn’t made. It denied us an opportunity to have an advantage in terms of numbers. I am angry with that.”
Atkinson will take charge of Watford’s Premier League home game against Tottenham on Saturday.
